E hó hì

Lyrics (gaelic)

E hó hì ibh hó ill a bhó
E hó hì ibh hó ill a bhó
Gura h-e mo ho hoireann o
E hó hì ibh hó ill a bhó
Rùn an t-uasal o hug ò ro
E hó hì ibh hó ill a bhó

Chunnaic mi'n dé ho hoireann o
E hó hì ibh hó ill a bhó
Seachad suas thu o hug ò ro
E hó hì ibh hó ill a bhó

Éileadh ort na ho hoireann o
E hó hì ibh hó ill a bhó
Breacain guailleadh o hug ò ro
E hó hì ibh hó ill a bhó

Le d' ghunna sneap ho hoireann o
E hó hì ibh hó ill a bhó
Or 'o ghuallainn o hug ò ro
E hó hì ibh hó ill a bhó

Claidheamh chinnghil ho hoireann o
E hó hì ibh hó ill a bhó
Or 'o chruachan o hug ò ro
E hó hì ibh hó ill a bhó

'N eala cha tig ho hoireann o
E hó hì ibh hó ill a bhó
Slàn bho d' luaidhe o hug ò ro
E hó hì ibh hó ill a bhó
E hó hì ibh hó ill a bhó
E hó hì ibh hó ill a bhó

Translation (english)

It is the nobleman who is my love
Yesterday, I saw you passing by
You were dressed in a shoulder plaid
With a gun on your shoulder
A claymore lashed to your hip
It is not good health that the swan will get from your lead
